Sanctus – Words: Traditional (c. 1st century), Music: Christine Cover and Scott Johnson

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Our call to worship was from Hebrews 1:3.

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

The Christ, Our Light by Martin Reardon

When all was dark and without dawn
You gave us Light, you sent your Son.
The Christ, the Christ, He shines, He shines
to take our sins away, away.

Wandering Soul by David A. Cover and Christine Cover

There’s nothing I can do
to take away the shame that I feel.
There’s nothing I can do

to shed the burdens carried with me.
I’m a sinner with a wand’ring soul.

But I felt the weight lift off of me
when I heard a Voice call out to me,
“It is done. It is finished.

I AM what you have been seeking.”

David read from James 1:12-15 and Psalm 18:2 to lead us into a time of quiet meditation.

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test,
that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Meditation Song: A Mighty Fortress is Our God – Words: Mar­tin Lut­her (1529, Rrans­lat­ed from Ger­man to Eng­lish by Fred­er­ic H. Hedge (1853), Music: Christine Cover and Greg Wiele

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name – Words by Edward Perronet (1780), Contemporary chorus by Judah Groveman (based on a arrangement by Jaron and Katherine Kamon)

All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Let angels prostrate fall;
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
and crown Him Lord of all.

Forever by Chris Tomlin

Give thanks to the Lord,
our God and King,
His love endures forever;
He is good, He is above all things,
His love endures forever;
Sing praise, sing praise.

Forever God is faithful. Forever God is strong.
Forever God is with us. Forever.
